This was a super fun day out. Our guide, Sakis, was so helpful, funny and all around a pleasure to have as a guide. The activities were well planned and everything went smoothly. The boat trip was incredible. So relaxing. The side activities did feel slightly rushed, I would have skipped the olive oil museum to have more time at one of the other stops, since it's a turtle tour. Museum was still interesting though with being able to taste different types of olive oil. Would recommend!

We had a great tour earlier today, it's our first full day in Zante and we're glad we spent it on this tour. Both drivers were really friendly, and so was the tour guide on the boat. Would definitely book with these guys again.

Our tour was postponed a day to give us the benefit of better weather; that was really good. Our guide was George's who was excellent. Couldn't recommend higher. Great tour.

We booked at the end of September, so there wasn't much going on. The driver was very friendly and for once even drove to our hotel outside the pick-up area.

All the guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. A great day out!
